Willow Vitamin E 30 Capsules
Vitamin E is an excellent antioxidant in the protection against heart disease, cancer and strokes. It prevents the oxidation of cholesterol and the initial damage to the artery which can ultimately lead to atherosclerosis. When taken in high doses vitamin E also offers significant protection against cancer. Diabetics have an increased need for this fat-soluble vitamin probably because oxidative stress is a major factor in diabetes but also because it improves insulin action.
Natural vitamin E supplements containing mixed tocopherols including tocotrienols appear to offer the greatest benefit. Both must be in the natural form designated by the letter d as in d-alpha-tocotrienol. Many supplements have only the synthetic form of vitamin E designated by the letters dl as in dl-alpha-tocopherol.
Willow Vitamin E Advanced contains both tocopherol and tocotrienol compounds in the natural form.
Vitamin E in its natural form of various tocopherols and tocotrienols has been proposed for the prevention of type 1 or 2 diabetes, blood sugar control, clotting problems or clogged arteries in diabetes, vitamin E deficiency in diabetic people, and for the prevention of diabetic complications. Vitamin E deficiency has been seen in people with diabetic foot ulcers. Vitamin E is also used for cataracts, asthma, respiratory infections, skin disorders, aging skin, sunburns, cystic fibrosis, infertility (often called the antisterility vitamin), impotence, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), peptic ulcers, for certain inherited diseases and to prevent allergies. Also helps to maintain healthy hair and scalp.
Take 1-2 capsules daily or as directed by health practitioner. Take with food and preferably together with vitamin C which regenerates oxidised vitamin E in the body and potentiates its antioxidant benefits.
